Wrapping up 2015
Thursday January 7, 2016
2015 has been a great year for Lamar Smith Homes! We have continued growing, both in number of employees and number of families that we serve. Take a look back at some highlights of 2015.
By the Numbers
2 New Communities Opened
1 Community began Construction (The Woodlands Villas is coming soon!)
106 Closings (That’s a 203% increase from 2013!)
14 New Lamar Smith Employees
Our 2015 communities are thriving! Savannah Highlands was opened early in the year and has only one remaining home available. Settlers Hammock was opened this fall in St Marys, and already has 20% of available homesites under contract or sold. We’re also excited for the Woodlands Villas at Southbridge, which started construction in 2015. Its highly anticipated release will come in early 2016!
Our craftsman elevations rolled out in 2015 and have been extremely popular. They’re a great way to add style and character to your home, while still maintaining an affordable price point. Visit lamarsmithsignature.com/floorplans to see renderings and photos of all of our elevations and floorplans.
Operation Hero House
In 2014 we founded the non-profit Operation Hero House in order to make coming home a little easier for wounded veterans. In early 2015, our first OHH recipients were presented with a mortgage-free home in Teal Lake. We’re honored to be afforded the opportunity to serve someone who has sacrificed so much for our country. For more information about the project, visit operationherohouse.com
Builder Hall of Fame
In December, The Home Builders Association of Greater Savannah presented Lamar with the coveted Hall of Fame Award. Lamar has served in every leadership role in the HBA of Greater Savannah, as well as received numerous awards, including Builder of the Year. Most of our team was able to attend the event and celebrate a great career!
Closings and New Homeowners
We hit some major milestones this year! We reached our 350th closing since our company began. We also closed our 100th home in December; this is the first time that we have hit triple digits in a single year. That’s a lot of new homeowners in the Lamar Smith family, and we’re happy to have them!
Looking forward to 2016, we’re excited for new opportunities and ready to keep growing. We’ve got a new website, new floorplans, and new communities in the works for 2016, so make sure you visit lamarsmithhomes.com to stay up-to-date!
